Message from our founder

I am delighted to have the opportunity to share with you the story of how I became fascinated with Costa Rica and why I founded this organization. It all started in 7th grade when I was tasked with researching another country for a social studies project. As I dove into my research, my teacher told me about Costa Rica, and I was instantly captivated by its natural beauty, vibrant culture, and commitment to sustainability. Fast forward to 2008, when I left my home in the mountains Santa Cruz, California, and made my way to this land that had captured my imagination so many years before. Since then, I have worked tirelessly to nurture this land and create a thriving community that values sustainability, biodiversity, and social responsibility.

Our organization is the culmination of my passion for Costa Rica and my commitment to making a difference in the world. Through our work, we aim to preserve the natural wonders of this country, while also empowering individuals and local communities while promoting sustainable tourism.

I look forward to working with all of you to achieve our shared vision for a healthy, sustainable and equitable future.
